Tis the season to be beautiful

Finally the cool temperatures are rolling out and warmer weather is starting to appear more and more. With the weather warming up so should your look. Today I just wanted to hit on a few beauty trends for the season. Lets start with makeup. Now me personally I love bold colors for the lips. It represents my playful side and I'll never give them up but it appears that softer, fresher lips are taking a stand. Nudes and pretty pastel lips is a popular option this spring. If you're not feeling the soft lips you can always reach for a tube of bright pink lipstick and try pairing it with kohl rimmed eyes. Along with those kohl rimmed eyes try dark lashes (real or fake) with a dusting of gold shadow over the lid. Next we go to the hair trends... The past few season many of you, like myself fell victim of the short hair trend. So this seasons trend is simply a result of us all letting our hair grow back out. Now unless your hair grows super fast, most of you like myself are going through that awkward inbetween short and long phase. If so then you're right on track! Old school cropped hair, 90's style bobs and grunge looks seem to be the popular look this season. And most importantly SKIN CARE!!! I cant stress enough how important it is to take care of your skin. It our first line of defense ppl, so we must do everything we can to keep it healthy. Now beautiful skin cannot be achieved by washing it daily alone. Not gonna happen. In order to have healthy skin you must drink plenty of water, eat right and get at least 8 hours of sleep nightly. All of these things affect your natural glow. In addition to being hydrated, eating healthy and rest, we do have to use a natural skin cleaner twice a day. Its imperative that we do this because you want to keep your skin free of dirt and oil! After you cleanse your skin reach for a gentle toner to tighten the skin and close the pores. Last but not least make sure you moisturize. You should always use a moisturizer with at least a spf of 15. All these things will help you achieve a healthy glow thats always in style!!!
